WITS Talks: Promoting Prosocial Behavior Through Children’s Literature

The beauty of literature is that it allows readers to see the world through the perspective of another, which connects perfectly with the goals of teaching young people empathy and compassion. Through this interactive workshop, participants will learn how to identify messages that promote prosocial behaviors. They will also learn about award winning books that promote social justice, animal protection, and environmental ethics, and how to discuss these topics with young people.

Join us for our WITS Talk, “Promoting Prosocial Behaviors Through Children’s Literature”. This workshop will be facilitated by Courtney Jones and Mickey Kudia, M.Ed. Exelon is located at 10 S. Dearborn St. Sign-in and lunch is from 11:30am-12:00pm, and the workshop begins promptly at 12:00pm.
